Dr. Fitzgerald Fixes Flawed Teeth with Cosmetic Bonding

Your smile plays an important role in your appearance and self-image. cosmetic bondingIt’s often the first thing others notice about you. But, depending on the condition of your front teeth, that may or may not be a good thing!

Cosmetic bonding from Fitzgerald Dental Center erases dental imperfections. Bonding is an economical alternative to porcelain veneers, and the procedure can be completed in a single office visit, in most cases.

I’m Dr. Lee Fitzgerald. I’ll work with you one-on-one to give you a smile you’ll be proud to show the world.

How does bonding work?
I’ll tint durable, long-lasting composite resin to match your natural tooth color, then apply it to the flawed area. After hardening the resin with a curing light, I’ll sculpt it into the desired shape and polish it for a completely natural appearance.

Does bonding last?
Cosmetic bonding lasts about 5 to 10 years, less than the lifespan of porcelain veneers.

What types of flaws does bonding fix?
I can correct a variety of imperfections with cosmetic bonding, including:

  • Gaps
  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Stains
  • Misalignments

By artistically sculpting the composite resin, I can change the shape and size of teeth, as well.

Does bonding look natural?
Yes, you won’t be able to tell your bonded tooth from a natural one. Composite resin doesn’t stain like natural tooth enamel, so you may need to come in for a whitening treatment to keep your natural teeth and bonded ones consistently white.

Cosmetic bonding is a good, cost-effective choice for many patients who want to improve the appearance of one or more flawed teeth. Find out if it’s right for you.
